Nokia has officially announced Creebies, a connected virtual pet game for its new N-Gage platform. If the name sounds familiar, it's because we got a brief glimpse of it at Nokia's Go Play event back in August.
Today's announcement doesn't give many more details, to be honest. You'll start with a trailer and virtual cash, and get to customise your 'Creebi' with accessories. Then it's a case of lavishing it with love and affection, to help it grow and become independent.
One new feature is Bluetooth, which will allow Creebies to play games together or even breed.
Meanwhile, the feature we referred to in our last story – the ability to send your Creebi to friends or put them up for adoption – is still in the game.
Creebies is due out early next year. It might sound twee from the description above, but it could be Nokia's attempt at snagging the Pokémon generation for N-Gage. We'll see.
